Chowdown With Chip – The Heart Attack Grill
A friend of mine showed me this video and I almost fell out of my chair! Realistically I may be able to get through the double, maybe the triple if I skip a couple of meals, but the quadruple??? Seriously??? Take a look at this video that was filmed at the Heart Attack Grill in Chandler Arizona.
It has courted controversy by serving high-calorie menu items with deliberately provocative names. The establishment is a hospital themed restaurant where waitresses (“nurses”) take orders (“prescriptions”) from the customers (“patients”). A tag is wrapped on the patient’s wrist showing which foods they order and a “doctor” examines the “patients” with a stethoscope.
The menu includes “Single”, “Double”, “Triple”, and “Quadruple Bypass hamburgers, ranging from 0.5 to 2 lb (0.23 to 0.91 kg) of beef (up to about 8,000 Calories), all-you-can-eat “Flatliner Fries” (cooked in pure lard), beer and tequila, and soft drinks such as Jolt cola and Mexican bottled Coca Cola made with real sugar. Customers over 350 lb (160 kg) in weight eat for free if they weigh in with a doctor or nurse before each burger. Beverages and to-go orders are excluded and sharing food is also not allowed for the free food deal.
